I have been fascinated with the image of the face of Christ from the time of my youth until today. My work is influenced by Byzantine Iconography and Expressionism. In my portraits of Jesus, my focus is on the dematerialization of the human form, giving way to the spiritual energy expressed through the image of the face of Jesus at key moments in his life. My hope is that the viewer will see the energy of God emanating from the images of Christ's face, drawing the viewer in close proximity to the light of Christ that enlightens all humankind to follow a path of sacrificial service and love for God and one another.
